A use case is a design exercise. It's a relatively high-level,
abstract description of how to perform a real-world task (defined by
inputs and outputs) using a hypothetical system--in practical terms, a
rough outline of something you could build that you think customers
would pay for. The task is independent of the system.

You might skim Bittner & Spence's "Use Case Modeling" to get a sense
of commonly accepted terminology.
